In 2010’s Predators , a group of elite warriors parachute into an unfamiliar jungle and are hunted by members of a merciless alien race.
The movie starred Adrien Brody, Topher Grace, Alice Braga, Walton Goggins, Oleg Taktarov, Laurence Fishburne, Danny Trejo, Louis Ozawa, Mahershala Ali, Carey Jones, Brian Steele, and Derek Mears. Predators was directed by Nimród Antal and written by Alex Litvak and Michael Finch based on characters by Jim Thomas and John Thomas. Robert Rodriguez produced.
ComingSoon.net: I recently re-watched Predators, and it’s a little underappreciated because it is a sequel, but it’s also its own thing. Since it is the 10th anniversary, what were some of your treasured memories of Predators?
Alice Braga: I mean, it was such a special film because Robert Rodriguez produced. I love that you’re asking this because I have a lot of love for that film. It’s a classic. I mean, it’s Predators . You think about the first one, “Back to the chopper!” You know? It is a classic for fans of this genre, and I love it. My mom loved it. So I grew up with it. But I feel that it was a special film because of Robert Rodriguez, our producer, and Nimród Antal, the director who’s super talented. And also we had Mahershala Ali in the cast. He’s a brilliant actor. He exploded and he’s doing everything. He’s going to do a Marvel film as well.
We had Topher Grace and also we had Walton Goggins that I love, and Adrien [Brody], so a really cool group of actors running from a predator. I think it was so cool to make it. I remember I was there, it felt like a videogame. So I think I have a lot of fond memories of that film, and actually was discussing it yesterday with a bunch of people, and I really hope the fans keep it in their hearts because it was a special one to make. I love the character Isabelle. She was a hard, badass, powerful girl.
